I honestly was talking with a guy friend about this on Monday. I honestly don't think I'm picky. It's just for many of us, we don't want to waste our time. I know people tell me I'm young but I don't feel like I have time to "see if something works out" when I look at some one and they have distinct qualities with which I do not feel I can live. Plus, those qualities that I do not find attractive might be just what attracts someone else to that person.
That is what I mean, Danielle. I think many of us here are 'picky' or we wouldn't be on this site. Some gals have told me, they just want a guy. If he doesn't beat, starve or cheat on them, they will consider themselves blessed. We all have our quirks, preferences and gifts and finding the right match is, to me, so important. Spending the rest of my life with someone--I want him to be 'picky' as well so we really think through the permanent commitment we make to each other.
I so agree with you about not wasting time. Good luck in your search and tell my hometown hello!
